CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Coach Raul Munoz was named Elementary Teacher of the Year as part of HEB's excellence in education awards.
A surprise pep rally was thrown in his honor at George Evans Elementary Thursday.
Munoz was awarded $10,000 for himself and a $10,000 grant for his school.
He said when educators do things for kids it's not for recognition or rewards, it's done because they recognize the needs of children.
